“Do I qualify for VA disability benefits?”
The process of applying for disability benefits (or appealing a denial) from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) can be time-consuming and complicated.
The VA uses a variety of criteria in evaluating claims, including:
- You must have served in active duty, active duty for training, or inactive duty for training
- You must have been at least 10% disabled due to injury or illness suffered while serving in the military
- You must have received a discharge other than dishonorable
In addition, you must demonstrate the following:
- Medical evidence of your disability (determined by a “C&P” exam)
- Evidence that the injury or illness that caused your disability was incurred in military service
IMPORTANT: You do not need to have been injured or suffered illness while in active combat in order to qualify for veterans disability benefits. For example, you may be eligible for VA disability if you were simply injured while playing basketball on a military base.
If you believe you may qualify for VA disability, talk with an experienced veterans benefits lawyer serving Cornelius NC.

“What are my chances of receiving benefits?”
There are no guarantees when you seek VA disability payments. And denials are very common. In fact, roughly 60 percent of initial claims are denied.
That said, you do have options to appeal and your chances of approval are greatly improved when you hire a VA disability attorney.
According to a 2017 report by the VA, just 24 percent of veterans disability appeals were approved when the veteran had no representation. However, roughly 40 percent of appeals were approved when the veteran did hire a veterans benefits attorney.
Don’t gamble on your potential benefits. If you’ve served our country and suffered a service-related injury or illness resulting in disability, you deserve justice and benefits.
